Diversified is excited to share the third SPARK Grant of 2015 was awarded to Meta House of Milwaukee. Meta House is a holistic treatment facility offering a family-centered, gender responsive substance abuse treatment for women and their families. Last year, the organization served 534 women and 245 children. As part of its program, Meta House hosts an array of sober activities so the women can learn to enjoy life in recovery with their children. The events help establish healthy social habits, solidify family bonds and replace using-thoughts with non-using thoughts. In addition to treatment services, parenting, vocational and educational services are delivered in residential, outpatient and transitional housing settings.
We still have three more SPARK grants available! Diversified continues to accept grant applications for new or existing programs that use fresh ideas to address a community need or problem. Visit www.diversifiedspark.com for more information or to apply.
